I consider our roads are hazardous, dont you? I bet even the traffic-safety experts will agee with me and nominate the following situations as ones most likely leading to road accidents and mishaps :-
1. CLOUDED THINKING
Alcohols, sleeping tablets, pain relievers, flu & cold preps, all have the effects of slowing down your reactions, one way or the other.
2. IGNORING PREVAILING CONDITIONS
Which includes long dry periods where oil, dust and rubber build up on the road; and heavy downfalls when visibility is poor. When driving during such conditions, be extra caution!
Fatigue, tiredness and the inability to focus can be fatal even on short distance trips.
“Rear-enders” contribute to vehicle collisions as well. Switch lanes appropriately, as those who hog the passing lane while driving on the speed limit can cause road rage and frustration to tailgaters.
5. CHANGING LANES WITHOUT LOOKING
Cars are often lost in a “blind spot” if mirrors arent aligned corectly. Whenever the car behind overtakes, we should be able to see its front bumber bar in the driver’s-side mirror when it draws level with our back bumper bar. If not, then our mirrors definitely needs to be readjusted.
